As members of the Church are called upon to ensure the safety of children and vulnerable adults in our parishes, schools, families, and local communities. In an effort to respond to this responsibility, the Diocese of Sioux Falls requires all employees and all volunteer adults and minors who are active in a diocesan organization to complete a safe environment program that teaches how to recognize and report abuse, and how to maintain proper boundaries.

Please join us in praying the Sorrowful Mysteries of the Rosary with Bishop DeGrood.  A handbout with rosary mystery meditations for each of the sorrowful mysteries is linked in the button below.
